After taking a long hard look at what it would take to pull the generator I opted to take it to an "Approved" Onan Service Center. They did have to pull the generator. As several of you suggested the temperature sensor/sender was bad causing it to shutdown after running for ~ 60 seconds. I'm supposed to pick it up today, $15 dollar part and $600 labor to pull, repair and reinstall, OUCH!!!

Glad you found the solution. As mentioned earlier, this is the time to change the belt and any other wear item that would require dropping the unit again.

How many hours were you charged for removing/replacing the gennie?

Have recently read on this or maybe another forum that to replace the belt does not necessarily require the gennie to be pulled if the tech knows what he is doing.

10.5 hours labor to pull, repair, reinstall the generator. Some of that was to drill out and retap two motor mount bolts.

I had similar start, run, die situation. The fault code led to a cooling problem. Long story short, it was the coolant sensor. Good part = sensor was only $20+, bad part labor $400+. Good part I didn't have to strain any, make any lift kits haul it to the shop, nor have to twist off the sensor and then drill it out as they did. Good Luck
